Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host for the evening, ScottyP, along with Jon 3.0, Rotorstorm and Tigertrack. Tonight we discuss those bizarre cloud figures, some neat TFCC goodies, a really drool worthy Masterpiece figure and how times are changing in the collecting world.
(0:20 - 10:48)
We start of the night discussing the newly released images of TFC-D04 Hellwarp and TFC-A04 Roadbuster ... will anyone actually be getting these figures? Guess you'll have to tune in to find out.
p.s If you have your figures on display, here is a must buy!
(19:23 - 27:28)
Of course we NEED to discuss these incredible photos of MP Ultra Magnus...
...as well as how excited we are for this guy, Star Saber!
(27:29 - 46:38)
With the overload of products coming out, we discuss a topic that has been at the forefront of a lot of collectors minds lately. Are we experiencing another exodus of collectors? Has the enthusiasm for the brand been diminishing and why? Listen in to hear what we think and our personal views on this topic.
...and it probably wasn't a good idea for Rotorstorm to mention that she actually hadn't started buying the comics. *epic fail*
(01:09:23 - 01:20:49)
Up next we have a listener question that the cast probably could have gone on for hours about.
(01:20:50 - end)
And of course we close the night with our bragging rights! Tune in to hear what goodies we were able to get our hands on finally.
Thanks everyone for listening and we appreciate the continued support! Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!

Check out the auctions here, or via his blog, a remember that part of the profits are for a charitable cause!

Usual deal, five sketches bagged with five copies of the increasingly rare #100 Convention Special. You can see them below or pop over to eBay
Have you ever thought what goes into creating the toys, other than design and production, plastic and rubber? Thanks to a tip from Seibertron.com user and voice actor jON3.0, we get a look at voice talents, among others, Rick Sellers, Brad Henderson, Walt Wise, and producer Wes McCraw talking and testing the recordings for the Transformers: Age of Extinction toy line, from Grimlock and Lockdown to Stinger and Bumblebee! Check out the embedded clip below.
A quick but meaty update from the fellows over at TFCon Chicago, regarding the announcement of yet another guest for the October convention: IDW comics artist Livio Ramondelli, from Chaos, Autocracy, Monstrosity, Punishment and more! He joins a long list of talented people, from voice actors to artists and writers, all of whom can be found here. Check out more info below!
We are pleased to announce that Transformers comic book artist Livio Ramondelli will be attending TFcon Chicago 2014. Livio is known to fans for his work on IDW’s Transformers comics with the Chaos storyline, the Autocracy, Monstrosity, Punishment and Primacy series as well as providing the art for the Orion Pax focused issues in the Robots in Disguise books. He will be selling prints and offering commissions to attendees all weekend long.
If you are itching to know what comes between MP-22 Ultra Magnus and MP-24 Star Saber, Taghobby has the answer in a newly revealed Masterpiece MP-23 Exhaust. Being a Decepticon, Exhaust is a redeco of the upcoming MP-20 Wheeljack with a new head. The figure also seems to come two new shoulder rocket launchers and the Wheeljack Instant Immobilizer. The deco is based on a Diaclone retool of the toy that would one day become Wheeljack. It has also come to be known as Marlboor Wheeljack by most fans.
It is our pleasure to introduce to you, the next two inductees into the galleries of Seibertron. Two members of the Age of Extinction Dinobots, Strafe and Slash. Strafe who transforms into a two-headed Pteranodon was a Knight who was imprisoned on Lockdown's ship and freed by Optimus Prime. Slash transforms into a Velociraptor but was not featured in the Age of Extinction movie. Click on any of the images to see the full galleries.
With gracious thanks to Seibertron.com member Powered Convoy, we have high-resolution scans of Figure King issues 198 and 199! Issue 198 is heavily featured by lots of Age of Extinction/Lost Age goodies, with QTF's Optimus Prime and Bumblebee figures, DMK-03 Lost Age Optimus Prime, the Transformers Expo exclusives, the fourth Movie Advanced wave, the second Legends wave, brief looks at Masterpiece Star Saber and Ultra Magnus, and other shenanigans.
Issue 199, meanwhile, features the massive (and uber-expensive) Museum Masterline Series Grimlock, Movie Advanced Sky Drift (Takara's answer to Drift's helicopter mode in Age of Extinction), LA-13 Nemesis Prime, and a summary of the Transformers Expo.
